DALLAS -- January 8, 2013

AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) announced today that it sold more than 10 million
smartphones in the fourth quarter of 2012, topping its previous record quarter
of 9.4 million, set in the fourth quarter of 2011. This included best-ever
quarterly sales of Android and Apple smartphones.

“We had another incredible quarter of smartphone sales as the mobile Internet
continues to drive strong growth in wireless,” said Ralph de la Vega,
president and chief executive officer for AT&T Mobility. “These are the
industry’s most valuable postpaid subscribers with average revenues twice that
of non-smartphone subscribers. During the quarter, we averaged more than
110,000 smartphone sales a day as customers flocked to our leading portfolio
of the latest Android, Apple and Windows devices. Combine that with the
nation’s largest 4G network and lightning-fast LTE network that now reaches
more than 170 million people and you’ll understand why customers continue to
choose AT&T in record numbers.”

AT&T is scheduled to release its full fourth-quarter 2012 financial results
after market close on Thursday, January 24.
